When I'm at the review page, the posts I've edited are 59:

But when I go to Users > Editors > All, I have edited 86 posts.

Which one is correct?

As a matter of fact, the same happens on Musical Practice. There is like a ~30 posts difference between the review page and the users page.

The full details are given here, under Copy Editor, the gold-level equivalent.

  • Edits on deleted posts do not count
  • Edits to your own posts do not count
  • Edits to community wiki posts do count
  • Edits that consist only of tag changes do not count
  • Tag wiki edits do count
  • Edits you suggest before gaining full edit privileges do count, once approved
  • Each edited post counts only once, regardless of how many additional edits you may submit

The difference is most likely tag-only edits. If you only change tags, that counts as an "edit" in the editors list but not for the badges.


Just a guess, but I think the first is the number of posts you've edited, and the second is the number of times you've edited posts. The ~30-post difference represents times you've made more than one edit to the same post.
